OCALA, Fla. -

Authorities say a 15-year-old boy is accused of slitting the throat of his girlfriend's mother.

The Ocala Star-Banner reports the woman is recovering after live-saving surgery on Sunday.

Deputies say woman's 13-year-old daughter lured the woman into the garage early Sunday, where the boyfriend attacked her. He went inside and held the knife to the father's throat but was persuaded to take the bleeding woman to the hospital.

According to an arrest affidavit, the teen dropped her off at the emergency room and hospital officials called the sheriff's office.

The teens were arrested hours later. The boy told authorities that he and his girlfriend planned the attack because they wanted to be together. They each face conspiracy to commit murder and attempted second-degree murder charges.
